    Actually, it doesn't have to be labled Dionaea 'vigorous' as far as I know. It would be way too time consuming to type Dionaea each time as I specialize in growing them and most names wouldn't fit on growing lables either if spelled out like that. We kind of already know what you mean by posting it in the Doinaea forum anyways and there isn't any drosera named vigorous. Rarely have I seen any Drosera and Dionaea having the same cultivar name.
    Plus, who is to decide wether the Drosera or Dionaea gets the shorter name? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
    But if there is some rule regarding that issue then I might be wrong, but so far I've never heard of any.

    AFAIK, Dionaea "Vigorous" is an unregistered clone, named and marketed by Triffid Park in Australia. Some CP companies in the US also have this plant in their catalog.

    Its for those people who have so many plants that they can't remember all their names, heh. J/K [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] No I suppose its just to encourage correct pronounciation of the names so that others (ie. people who are really involved in the busniess of ecology, conservation stuff and also newcomers) don't get confused. But for the rest of us we know what we're talking about.

    BTW, so no one's tried root cuttings with a VFT? I doubt that would take though, the VFT would probably die if you cut off its tap roots.

    I think what is really neat is when a baby VFT actually grows out of the stalk!

    Yeah, I did try this same thing a while back, but it didn't work... not sure if I just needed to cut it farther down on the stem or what, but it didn't work. But hey, try anyway.. what the hell not.

    No, what I'm talking about is a mutation; when a baby plant or two or three sprout out of the stalk while it is still on the plant.

    I've never had it happen to me, but I have seen pics.
